Trade Unions and Social Dialogue: How to Work out Employer - Employee Compromise?
Languages of publication
Contemporary rules of corporate governance do not take into account interests of stakeholders (employees) sufficiently, while focusing on managers - shareholders bilateral relations in company management. Global crisis, globalization and flexible working conditions on labor markets make social dialogue very difficult to be achieved as a main goal in trade unions' efforts to improve situation of employees. This article analyzes two models of trade unions (American model and European model) in a process of shaping social compromise at workplace. This theoretical approach to the role of labor organizations tries to find an answer how to succeed in implementing necessary changes to make social dialogue much easier to be attained.
